154bh cable TV connection

My travel trailer has a cable jack to watch channels that the antenna picks up. Most of the KOAs we go to have cable available at each site. The trailer however, doesn't have a cable jack on the outside? Is there anyway to get a coax cable into the unit so we can make use of the channels available? I'd rather not have a cable coming through the screen door having to be left open a crack or something

run the flat part through your window. Close the window.. It fits. Both ends then can be connected to a standard cable.

Both well used. Now up to 250 nights camping and 70,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

We have the 174bh and I believe it has a coax hookup to the left of the water heater. Small black cap?

I was under the impression that my unit didnt have an outside hookup. And I couldn't find out. But once it's out of storage I'll take another good look around the water heater. Thanks!

On my 154BH it is inbetween the upper refrig. vent and the air heater vent and is labeled as cable tv.

I see pictures of a 2019 that has the outside cable jack. My 2018 definitely doesn't have that. Thanks for the replies though

If your television is next to an outside wall, it does not take $10 worth of parts to put your own connection in the wall. Just a little scary drilling through that wall, but really no big deal if you research it really well. Put an outside weatherproof jack on the outside and an inside jack plate on the inside and you are all set. Run a coax from there to your tv and tune the channels when you are all hooked up to cable.
